My husband and I got married at Valley Country Club on September 24, 2016. To say it was absolutely perfect would be an understatement. Before I get into the details, I need to mention that the wedding venue we originally had decided on went out of business six weeks before our wedding. As you can imagine, this was our worst nightmare. I saw on the news that Valley Country Club was willing to help couples the that were affected by this. I immediately looked them up in Facebook and loved what I saw! The grounds were absolutely breathtaking. There is a beautiful view, no matter where you stand. Afterwards, I read some reviews and they were all great reviews! I immediately reached out to Melodi and from our first conversation, she assured me she was going to do everything in her power to help us. If you can imagine, six weeks before your wedding, everything is already planned, so to have a major hiccup like this come up, really three us through a loop. Melodi made sure she offered me everything I originally had planned for at the other venue, including he exact same menu and so much more! I could have never imagined what she was able to do for us especially on such short notice. Each time after we met leading up to the wedding, I felt so comfortable and confident that everything was going to be absolutely perfect. The day of the wedding, Steve was so attentive and made sure my bridal party and I were cool, calm and collected. Each time he came to ask if we needed anything, he brought such a calming manner to the room and let me tell you....that's exactly what every bride needs! All throughout the night, anytime I needed anything, Steve was there with a smile on his face. I could never thank Valley Country Club enough for my beyond AMAZING day!!!! In hindsight, I'm so glad my original venue closed and I was able to have my wedding at VCC. I HIGHLY recommend this venue to every single couple starting on their wedding planning journey. If you want a professional staff who takes your wedding as serious as you do, this is the place to go!!!!
I cannot say enough good things about Valley Country Club! After months of us searching for the right venue we were getting discouraged because many places were telling us we couldn't have certain things that we wanted due to our Harry Potter theme. I was so happy when we met with Melodi for the first time and she addressed all of our concerns. She made me feel 100% confident that choosing Valley CC as our wedding venue would ensure that we would have a perfect wedding. When we had our food tasting before the wedding we were thrilled with the dinner and the fact that we didn't just get small parts of the meal but a full plate of what we would be eating on the day of. Melodi was always in contact with me ensuring I was on time with my things I needed to get to her and she always answered my emails and questions promptly. We decided on having the candy bar and Melodi even went through the time with us to name all of the sweets after Harry Potter candies and also made us a specialty drink for the toast. At the rehearsal everyone did a fabulous job of making sure everyone would know where they had to be on the day of the wedding and what had to be done. I have low blood sugar and asked if Steve would have a plate of hors d'oeuvre waiting for me after the ceremony and on the day of he didn't disappoint! The day of the wedding went smoothly and I wasn't worried at all. They set up the room perfectly and the uplighting as well as overhead lighting was beautiful and added a perfect touch to the night. My guests all said they had a wonderful time and loved the food. I am so glad that we chose this venue for our special day. If you choose Valley Country Club as your venue for your special day you will not be disappointed!!
Our wedding was held at Valley Country Club on September 23rd, 2016. Over the past few years my husband and I have attended a substantial number of weddings, so needless to say we went in to planning our wedding with a very detailed checklist of what we wanted and didn’t want. From the first visit, checklist in hand, we knew Valley was perfect. We immediately fell in love with the elegant ballroom, and the beautifully maintained grounds. From the existing decorations, sure to make any wedding reception beautiful, to the obvious gorgeous photo opportunities throughout the facility, we knew it was the real deal. But honestly, the crown jewel was Melodi and Steve. From the first moment we met Melodi, we hit it off, my husband over their mutual love for Bon Jovi, and me over her obvious passion for making each wedding day unique and perfect. And of course there’s Steve, who promised from day one to be our “go to” guy…and who always delivered. The only question in our mind was can we afford it?? The simple answer was “YES”!! We were able to have all of the upgrades we wanted, from chairs to lighting, within our budget…which trust me was moderate for a New England wedding. Throughout the planning process, Melodi was accessible, and always prompt to answer any questions I had…even from 900 miles away! Did I mention we live in Tennessee? You’d think planning a wedding from such a distance would be a huge challenge, and perhaps with some venues it may be, but not this one. They were always accommodating of whatever we needed. The day of the wedding was all that we could ask for and more. The staff were amazing. The food fantastic (I still get comments from guests on the ample portions, excellent quality, and on how piping hot the food was when it hit the table). And the ambiance was perfection. From Steve making sure the bride was never without a cocktail, to Melodi making sure my train was perfect for the walk down the aisle, there’s literally nothing more we could have asked for. An amazing time was had by all. That being said….To all reading this review while searching for the perfect venue…I urge you to visit Valley Country Club…you won’t be disappointed. To Melodi, Steve, and the staff at Valley Country Club…you will forever be in our memories of our wedding day, and always in our hearts! Thank you so very much for making our day perfection!
Me and my wife recently got married on February 25th, 2017 what an amazing experience! Our wedding party looked so beautiful! As soon as we arrived at the venue we were treated like a king and queen! All of the wedding guest were raving about how amazing the food was and how beautiful the lighting was! I highly recommend Valley County Club to anyone for any occasion! Loved it !!
We had our reception at Valley Country Club on Nov 19th, 2016 and couldn't have asked for a better experience. From our initial tour and meetings with the club manager, Melodi, we knew we had picked the right venue. She is very helpful, gives great advice, and made us feel so comfortable the whole time. And to top it off, they were so amazing the day of the wedding. Steve did not leave our side the whole night and made sure we had everything we needed. My favorite part is when he even brought my water to the dance floor! The venue is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the staff is so nice. We got so many compliments about the place and it makes us feel so great. Thank you for helping make our day extra special and so memorable!
My husband and I had our reception at Valley Country Club. To say the least, WOW! I can't believe how classy it was and how much fun we had! Melodi(club manager) was very helpful and accommodating from the very first meeting. When I called or emailed her with a question she got right back to me and eased my concern. That was crucial for me. There is nothing worse than waiting for a response or an answer to a question. When we got there it was raining and Lauren (the bridal host that day) was outside waiting for me with an umbrella. Everyone was so warm and welcoming inside. They showed me to the bridal suite and it was super cute! Because it was raining, we opted to not take many photos outside(although I've seen what the grounds look like and had it not been raining we would have gotten some amazing pictures outside). We took photographs inside near a fireplace, on the huge stairway and banister, and we did go outside at night under their stone bridge(really cool) and got some gorgeous shots. Throughout the night if I needed anything Lauren was right there(not on top of me that it was annoying, but if I looked up she was right there for even the smallest of details). I never thought we could afford a quality place like this but surprisingly it was very reasonable. The whole time we were there it was like a fairy tale. I feel like every bride says that about her day, but it wasn't just perfect for me, it was perfect for my husband, the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the guests, and the food was some of the best I've ever had. And don't get me started on the ice cream dessert table! My guests said the staff was polite, attentive and neat. I wish I could do it all over again! If I could I would have it at Valley again and I wouldn't change a thing ☺️ thank you Valley CC!
Our wedding was on July 10, 2016. It was perfect. Melody is so easy to work with and really takes the time to listen to what you envision on that day. Our reception was suppose to be outside but the weather wasn't cooperating. So we had to have it inside. I was disappointed and thought it wouldn't be what I envisioned. As I walked into the room, my face lit up. It was so beautiful, romantic and better than I imagined. Steve was my go to man the whole day. As we got ready, he provided us with snacks, lunch and anything we needed. He kept us right on schedule. They orchestrate every detail effortlessly, I was so relaxed and didn't have to worry about anything. Chef Terry's attention to detail is amazing. The food was outstanding and presented beautifully. Thank you all for making it so special.
My Husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Valley Country Club and are extremely happy with how everything went on our wedding day! The staff was amazing and made sure everything went smooth. When I first walked in the reception hall before the wedding I was more than happy with how the staff set up all my decorations/centerpieces, they made the room look absolutely gorgeous! Melodi was great through the whole process of the wedding day and leading up to the day, any questions we had Melodi was very helpful! The night of the wedding Steve did a great job taking care of anything we needed, he was definitely an awesome Bridal Host! I highly recommend Valley Country Club for your wedding!!
We could not be happier with our choice in Valley... Beautiful venue, grounds and amazing food! And I don't think I could have gotten through the craziness without Melodi! She helped us every step of the way from working with our budget to making sure we knew the timeline as far as booking other vendors from the DJ to the photographer. I highly recommend VCC and Melodi, you won't be disappointed!
Thank you to Steve and Melodi for the great help and service during our wedding! They made the planning progress simple and enjoyable! Our guests were very impressed with the food, service and the facility. I would highly recommend having a wedding at Valley to my friends and family. Thanks again for everything!!!
We had the best experience with Valley Country Club. Melody and Steve were awesome at listening to what we wanted and making our wedding day perfect. the grounds are gorgeous and our pictures came out perfect. The room itself was beautiful and the food was delicious. Melody and Steve did a perfect job answering all of our questions and making sure everything was perfect. We highly recommend Valley Country Club!
My husband and I had our reception at valley on September 3rd. From the very beginning of the planning process up until the wedding day Melodi made us feel comfortable and took all of the stress out of planning our reception. She was so easy to work with and gave us great recommendations for other vendors as well. We went with the gold chivari chairs and the uplighting and overhead lighting package, it was well worth it and added the perfect touch. We also rented the deck for cocktail hour which I loved because I like the idea of having the cocktail hour and reception in different spaces. I cannot say enough about the food. Our guests raved about the food and are still talking about it a month later. We had also went with late night snacks toward the end of the night which was a huge hit. The day of the wedding Steve was so great to work with. From the second I arrived to the end of the night he was very attentive. I was upset upon arriving when things from another vendor did not go as planned he helped ease my mind and forget all about it. It was a gorgeous day the room looked amazing and the staff was very attentive and professional. I highly recommend valley country club to anyone planning their wedding.
I recently had my wedding reception at Valley Country Club and it was a night I will never forget. From the beginning until the very end, Melodi Caruso was instrumental in making my wife and I feel comfortable with our venue choice and in making the entire process a breeze. The ballroom is gorgeous, the deck and grounds phenomenal, and above all the FOOD and SERVICE was impeccable. We also chose to utilize the gorgeous above and uplighting package (it makes a huge difference, definitely ask Melodi about it). And our guests are still raving about the food two weeks later. I cannot stress enough: this is not your typical wedding food. This is gourmet cuisine. The service was so personal for the both of us and our guests. Lauren was assigned to us as a bridal host and she tended to our every need all night. It was like having a personal assistant. We didn't have to do a single thing all night but have fun! The bartenders (Julie and Igor) were awesome and kept everyone happy all night. Our guests really enjoyed the service staff as well so we could not have done it without them (their names were Kellie, Pam, Tyler and Jody). There is so much more I could say but I wanted to make sure I singled out the most important parts of our evening. I am so happy we chose Valley Country Club. It may have been a cold and rainy day, but Valley made this the best day of our lives. Thank you Melodi and thank you Valley CC!
My husband Ryan and I recently got married at Valley country club and we had such a magical day!! We worked with Melodi, the club director and she was amazing to work with!! She made the process so easy and the prices are great! The beautiful bridal suite was a great area for myself and 6 bridesmaids to get ready and take pictures!! The ceremony went off beautifully and the bridal assistant Steve was amazing and took care of us the entire night making it such an unforgettable day. The food was amazing, we had a buffet with chicken, scrod and penne vodka. The food was a HUGE hit!! We had such a great time and our guests Had a blast with the photo booth we could bring, people are still talking about it!! If you are looking for a beautiful, unforgettable day this is your place!!!!
Melodi and Steve at Valley are amazing. They were there for anything we needed and were helpful in the planning of and the day of our wedding. The venue is awesome, with a large bridal suite, ceremony and reception spaces. I highly recommend them. You will get all of your monies worth and more.
Absolutely the perfect venue, we had an amazing wedding on 9/10/16. From the start, Melodi was fantastic to work with. She is highly experienced and had every detail under control. If you forgot something no worries she would make sure it was done. Night of wedding was amazing, Steve was an amazing bridal host. All the staff were extremely attentive to all the needs of my husband and I as well as our guests. They are very accommodating on every level not to mention that the food was outstanding! All of our guests came up to us throughout the night amazed at the venue, to how great the food is to the décor of the ballroom. Thank you Melodi and the Valley staff for making our wedding AMAZING!
Absolutely Perfect! Everything about our reception at valley was just amazing. The food was excellent, the decor I had picked out was beautifully displayed and the service the day of and leading up to our wedding day was just outstanding. Melodi and Steve made everything so easy and absolutely everything went smoothly and perfectly. I would highly recommend this venue! Very affordable and just beautiful!
I just had my wedding reception at Valley Country Club about a month ago and we can't thank them enough for everything. Melodi was a pleasure to work with during the entire planning process and she definitely is great at what she does. She did everything we requested and things turned out better than I ever would have expected. During the planning she was always quick to respond to my calls and emails when we had questions and always willing to give advice when requested. Steve was by our side all night to make sure that we and our wedding party were well taken care of. Even the next day when we had to go pick things up he had everything packed up and ready for us. Our guests have been telling us since Saturday that all the food was amazing from the hors d'oeuvres to the main entree. Chef Terry did an amazing job. Also, the service was impeccable and even guests raved about it. When someone requested something, it was brought right to them. We have been told several times by guests that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Thank you Valley Country Club and staff for making our wedding reception a night to remember.

If you are looking for the perfect venue for your wedding, please look at Valley. The professionalism, devotion, and amazing service from beginning to end makes your day flawless. Melodi is the best club manager and her expertise guides you to the best choices for your day. She is there through every step, decision, and helps you through the toughest parts. She makes the not so pleasant parts of the day so much better and is a true gift to a nervous bride.i have her to thank for helping me make the day look beautiful, go smoothly, and keep it on my budget. She is upfront and honest and has years of experience that put me at ease. Danny was another team member at valley that stood out for me. His dedication and service the day of the wedding was more than I could ask for . He was there with food,drinks, and helped us with anything we needed. Many brides say ...if i could do it differently...i cannot say that. Valley is a gorgeous venue with bar and deck that overlooks the golf course. It has amazing food that pleases even the toughest italian families with great portions and piping hot food , aldenti pasta cooked perfectly, antipasto to die for! The staff gives consistent great service and are professional but also so much fun. It was cost effective for a young couple on a budget. I urge anyone to try this venue .I am so happy with my choice and still glow when I think of my day and how beautiful it was because of their hard work and expertise.
So happy I chose ValleyReviewed on 11/06/2015
I first chose Valley Country Club because a friend of mine said they were the best they found for a good price. I'm so happy I did! The location was perfect and very convenient for our guests. We have received so many compliments on the food and have even had people tell us it was the best wedding they had been to! The scenery was amazing for the ceremony and reserving the deck for cocktail hour is a must. Medoli was extremely helpful with planning and was great with responding to my emails. On the day of the wedding, Steve made sure myself and the rest of the bridal party were comfortable and taken care of. We still talk about how we wish we had him around all the time! As happy as I am that the planning is over, I'm extremely satisfied with how everything turned out. I highly recommend!
Amazing venue and staff!Reviewed on 11/01/2015 Brittany H

Our wedding was Sept. 5, 2015. We chose Valley Country Club for our special day. Valley Country Club was amazing. They really make you feel comfortable and and check on you all night to make sure you and guests are comfortable. We had Danny the night of our wedding. He went above and beyond.I had a stain on my dress and he went and got soda water and came to the bridal room and wiped my wedding dress clean. He was awesome. He checked on my husband and I all night. Asked us if we needed anything and if we did did he took care of it. Our Ballroom was perfect with our black and white theme. The food was perfect. Everyone loved it. They are still talking about what a great place The Valley Country Club is and they had a great time. From Melodie to all the staff that night they were great. Our wedding was amazing and We thank them all for their attentiveness and professionalism. We will recommend Valley Country Club to everyone with any type of event. Thank You Valley Country Club.

pires wedding 8915Reviewed on 10/30/2015
our wedding day at the VCC was one for the ages. from the minute we went to see the place, my wife and i fell in love with its simplicity and the complete overview of its golf course. from the food down to the last bridal detail, the VCC was very open arms in granting us everything we needed to make our wedding day as smoothly as possible. the dining hall was so beautifully decorated and alongside the light fixtures, it made everyone in the room feel right at home with each other and its atmosphere. the food was simply delicious!!! our guests loved the food so much that they split plates for seconds from the guests who weren't able to come... the staff... considering the party they had dealt with the night before, the bartenders, support, and our personal assistant Danny, made sure that all of our guests had the best service from top to bottom. not once did anyone had an issue with their food, their drinks, or even the a/c that had its cold moments. but i must raise my glass for the person that overseen every detail from our first meeting down to when we were leaving from our wedding event: Melody Caruso. she opened all doors to make possible whatever we needed for our big day: our photographer, the food tasting, and our vendors had full access to their needs also thanks to Mel. being a wedding DJ/vendor myself and knowing firsthand how management of a wedding event can be, my wife and i had top notch service and nothing was comprimised from a business or personal standpoint. the overall price that we paid for our wedding event may have cost a pretty penny, but the VCC made our party 'priceless'.. our wedding day may have started out with gray skies.. but by the time my beautiful bride hit the runway, the sun shined its brightest on the whole wedding event... and the VCC magically made it all happen.
Excellent!!!Reviewed on 10/28/2015 Miranda F
We had visited many wedding venues before deciding on Valley Country Club. Valley offered a romantic setting, with flawless grounds, a huge dance floor, and five star dining. Melodi the manager was phenomanol, the service was excellent, and the food was fantastic! Everything about our big day was perfect!
There are so many reasons why Valley CC was a pivotal component of my wedding. We got married on October 4th and the day was spectacular! We originally planned on having the wedding outside on the 10th tee but mother nature planned otherwise. The indoor set up was truly amazing--so much more than I had imagined. The pictures were out of this world as a result, and we were still able to capture the formal photos outside. Melodi- the event coordinator was helpful and knowledgeable. She made the process very easy. Stephen was our bridal host and ensured that every second of the wedding day was wonderful. He truly shined in his roles and is a huge reason I would recommend Valley CC to anyone getting married in RI. They both were wonderful! The food was INCREDIBLE- every single guest came up to me and made a point to say that the food was outstanding and better than they had ever had at a wedding. Plenty of ambiance and the set up was enticing, too. The only 2 things I will note as something less than positive are: 1. The bar staff was (it appeared) short-staffed and everyone waited a while for drinks. This may not matter for your wedding (if you're doing an open bar people don't care how long they wait as long as it's free haha//or you don't have big drinkers on the guest list etc) but for me it was a bit of a downside. Some guests told me they waited over 15 minutes. 2. Valley's crew isn't equipped to handle center-piece set up. So-- for you considering them as a venue keep in mind your florist will have to do this, which is common, or you will have to rely on family/friends. I had to go this route since I did not do floral centerpieces and it was fairly stressful. But overall the centerpieces came out better than I could possibly have imagined and it turned out fine. Overall- 5 stars for so many reasons. The price was FANTASTIC and the experience was outstanding. I would highly recommend.
